  1. Nothing quite as frustrating as buying a game then finding out your system is too slow to run it adequately. The big problem is that even when you read a game’s specs, it doesn’t always accurately reflect what’s needed. Half Life: Alyx sounds like fun, but I can’t play it using my current PC set-up. Now that I know however, I may get an upgrade sooner than I was planning. I really would like to spend time on this game, but only if it runs right.

  2. Looks like it’s the perfect time for me to finally fork over some cash for a new computer. My processor is SLOW. I’ve already missed out on multiple games due to not having the right setup and HALF LIFE: ALYX looks real intriguing. Thanks for letting everyone know about the PC requirements, sometimes games don’t make it real clear on what requirements you need or they assume you have them already.

  3. HALF LIFE: ALYX is a great PC Games. Many PC games out there are underrated and this is one of them in my opinion.
